All the Xbox Game Pass games coming and leaving soon

Discover every new game coming to Xbox Game Pass right here.

Xbox Game Pass is the ever-expanding Netflix-like gaming subscription from Microsoft, the makers of Xbox. For a monthly subscription, Xbox Game Pass partakers gain access to a constantly rotating catalog of hundreds of high-quality Xbox games. The best Xbox Game Pass games include third-party multiplayer games, older AAA titles, indie projects, all first-party Microsoft games, and pretty much everything in between.

Xbox Game Pass is also included in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, an all-in-one subscription that gives players full access to Xbox Game Pass on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One consoles, Xbox Game Pass on PC, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud), and even EA Play. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate represents one of the best values in gaming, and that value only increases from month to month.

That's because Xbox Game Pass is always adding new games, with announcements once or twice a month. While games occasionally leave the service, the number of games available through Xbox Game Pass has been steadily growing since its launch. In this Xbox Game Pass guide, we'll go over all the new games coming to the service, the games about to leave, and the top games you should be keeping an eye on.

If you want the complete list, be sure to bookmark our ultimate guide to every game on Xbox Game Pass.

Best new Xbox Game Pass games: July 2021

You'll rarely go wrong with the diverse selection of games on Xbox Game Pass, but there are always a handful of titles that stand above the rest — including but not limited to exceptional indie games, addictive multiplayer games, expansive AAA games, and Microsoft's first-party games. These are the best new games that have recently arrived on Xbox Game Pass.

The Medium

  • Available: July 15 (Xbox Series X|S Optimized, PC, & Xbox Cloud Gaming)

This isn't the first time The Medium has been featured in this section, as the game launched into Xbox Game Pass as a generally excellent psychological horror. Now, however, you can play The Medium through Xbox Cloud Gaming on your mobile device, thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming's recent upgrade to custom Xbox Series X hardware. If you're looking for a scare on the go, look no further than The Medium.

Battlefield V

  • Available: July 20 (Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, & Xbox Cloud Gaming) via EA Play

Another game that was previously already available on Xbox Game Pass, Battlefield V is one of the newest games to join the quickly growing ranks of Xbox Cloud Gaming titles, and is now available on your mobile device or non-gaming PC. Battlefield V is a large-scale online multiplayer shooter, and should definitely keep you occupied while you wait for Battlefield 2042, the next entry in this chaotic and crazy franchise, to release later this year.

Limbo

  • Available: July 1 (Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, & Xbox Cloud Gaming)

Limbo is another game that shows its age a little bit nowadays, but it's still a fantastic title for anyone who enjoys the slightly macabre. Limbo features creepy visuals and a haunting story tied together with relatively simple platforming mechanics. Limbo's spiritual successor, Inside is a highly rated masterpiece, and it's clear where its inspirations originated.

Upcoming games launching on Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft gives us updates on games heading to Xbox Game Pass a few weeks before those games become available, usually twice a month. However, Xbox and ID@Xbox events toss aside this expectation to announce a flurry of games that are hitting Xbox Game Pass day and date, meaning they're launching into the service when they land on Xbox platforms. That means day one access to all of these games for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, including some of the best upcoming Xbox games.

Many of these games are far enough out that they don't even have a release date, and we're not certain exactly which platforms they'll come to through Xbox Game Pass. Still, this list in our Xbox Game Pass guide will give you an idea of what to look out for in the future of Xbox Game Pass. We'll constantly update this list as we get new information about release dates, when games become available, and what platforms are getting them.
